Here's how to restore your KF to stock from a custom ROM

make sure you have the stock recovery installed (if you are in CM7 you are)

First, download the latest official update from here -> http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200790620

then download this file -> http://www.mediafire.com/?31sljwzyu0i1nev
and place it on your sdcard
it should be /sdcard/command

rename the amazon update to update.zip (even if it's a .bin file, make sure it is update.zip, NOT update.zip.bin
then, place that file on the sdcard under /sdcard/kindleupdates/
it should be /sdcard/kindleupdates/update.zip

turn off usb mass storage mode
go into the adb shell and type
cd cache
mkdir recovery
cp /sdcard/command /cache/recovery/
idme bootmode 0x5001
reboot

i just went from cm7 to stock and it worked fine

This makes me much more inclined to try to CM7; however, I think I will wait for a final version of the ROM. Seems like a lot of good progress is being made. Thanks for posting!

I think the current CM7 build is pretty soild.
Is it possible to mess around with ROMs in Eclipse or do you need to be running linux?

Never tried using another OS. I believe the easiest OS to set up a build environment is linux (ubuntu primarily)
